What To See At Security & Government Expo 2019
See the Speedlane solution at SAGE 2019.
This year 35 of Australia’s leading security technology suppliers are exhibiting at SAGE 2019 in Canberra today, November 14 (pre-register here) and they’ll be bringing their best solutions with them.
What will we see at SAGE this year? It goes almost without saying there will be an operational focus, a situational awareness focus and continued pressure on cost – that last one is likely to see attention focused on clever management solutions running on standard hardware, wireless locking solutions, multi-head cameras and video analytics, including LPR, face recognition, perimeter security functions and more.
Another characteristic of SAGE is cutting edge high security solutions and we’ll see the latest PSIM options, drones and drone detection, perimeter security solutions, Class 5 intrusion detection solutions, thermal cameras, drugs and explosives scanners, crowd protection systems and communications and networking peripherals. There’s no doubt that analytics is cutting edge at present – there will be some brilliant solutions at SAGE.
SAGE 2019 is the first opportunity security managers, integrators and consultants in the ACT will have to check out the Nirovision Identity Recognition Platform. A cloud-based solution, Nirovision says this solution gives businesses and organisations a ‘super-powered’ ability to know who is around their premises. Identification extends beyond a name or a face – identities encompass the groups we associate with, our preferences and behaviours. By knowing who is around, organisations become more secure, productive and profitable.
Important, too, Nirovision’s Facial Recognition algorithms run frictionlessly in the background, so there’s no need for user-carried identification devices of any kind. The Nirovision platform includes a rich identity database, activity reports and analytics, alerts and integrations, and mobile and desktop apps.
DataLine Visual Link will show AnyVision analytics at SAGE. AnyVision is a server-based GPU-powered analytic solution that can process 23 faces simultaneously and offers a toolbox of neat features and functions. AnyVision works on a convolutional neuroscience artificial intelligence algorithm – it undertakes feature extraction from all around the face and as long as there are 3-4 decent features, there’s a match. With 115,000,000 people on the AnyVision database, it’s still possible to get a match in .2 of a second – airport analytic solutions take 9 seconds to make a match between a live image and a passport photo.
Bosch Security Systems makes such great cameras it’s possible to forget the company is also a video analytics pioneer. At SAGE this year, Bosch will be showing the latest in video analytics and machine learning. With video analytics at the edge standard in all Bosch cameras, it’s possible to use metadata to add sense and structure to captured video footage. Bosch Camera Trainer allows better camera setup ensuring less is missed – the more a video security camera can know and learn, the more accurately and application specifically it can perform and the deeper the layers of information that can be translated into instant alerts and business intelligence via simple dashboards. This means security teams can make smarter business decisions, reducing costs and increasing efficiency.
Axis, too, will be bringing analytics to SAGE, along with CCTV, access control, automation and audio solutions. Axis video analytics applications enable proactive surveillance, helping security staff protect property by detecting and deterring crime. The applications can detect trespassers or loiterers and automatically notify a guard or play a message over a loudspeaker. The edge-based applications are scalable and help reduce bandwidth and storage use by sending and recording only video that is of interest. Axis also offers a range of applications for the retail industry that provide valuable and actionable statistics, as well as tools that help businesses improve sales, prevent losses and increase profits.
Sektor will show intelligent, network-centric IT devices – including FLIR cameras – which not only capture but analyse image data to deliver true business value. Detection and surveillance are an important application of video cameras, and image analysis and recognition now helps businesses streamline process, reduce cost, and deliver new forms of customer service. As well as cameras, Sektor has network video recorders and video management software.
Another company bringing its latest management solutions, including intelligent search, LPR and face recognition technology, to SAGE is Geutebruck.

Milestone Systems will show XProtect 2019 R3 release with new Search, a centralized search platform in XProtect Smart Client, making it possible for users to search for everything in one place. Previously, users performed several standalone searches, depending on what data they were searching for, seeking motion, alarms, events, bookmarks and other types of data. Search platform also embeds partner integrations and their powerful analytic capabilities via dedicated filtering options. Search criteria such as line-crossing and object-in-field can be enabled directly in Search Tab, saving time and increasing efficiency.
Honeywell’s Command and Control Suite PSIM was developed for critical government infrastructure to support mission critical life safety and security systems integration platform designed to give security teams insight, agility and automation to better coordinate security management an emergency response from any networked location. CCS is an open platform built on industry standard operating systems and server hardware and integrates with a wide range of 3rd party subsystems, controllers and applications using open protocols. It’s another solution well worth a look at SAGE.
For security managers in correction and defence, drones pose a serious threat to operations. Sensing Products will show multi-function radar sensors designed to detect objects previously undetectable by traditional radar and perimeter security solutions. The product range includes the new Osprey SAOR contraband detection radar – designed and manufactured by Sensing Products in Australia, as part of a joint initiative with NSW Corrective Services Industries.
